Infinity Link Necklace

This necklace showcases Miyuki Berry beads. Berry beads are small peanut-like beads measuring 2.5mm x 4.5mm. The hole is in the center of the bead so when strung together they interlock to create wonderful texture in your designs. In this project we will use two strands of C-Flex beading wire to make beaded links which suspend the bone rings.

Infinity link berry bead necklace stringing instrutions

Step 1: Fold tape over both pieces of beading wire (about 10" from one end). Begin with the longer side of the wire and string both pieces through a pink porcelain bead. Separate the wires and string 7 Berry beads onto each side creating a V shape.

Step 2: Bring one strand through the center of your first bone ring. Once in place it should be sitting in the center of your V shape.

Step 3: Put both strands through a green czech glass bead so that it is sitting inside of the ring. Separate the two strands again, so that one goes in front and one behind the ring.

Step 6: Continue in this manner until the center portion of your necklace is complete. For our example we used 5 sections with rings.

Step 7: Finish by stringing both strands of C-Flex wire through berry beads until you have reached the desired length on each side. We added a czech glass bead onto each end so that the beading wire can be doubled back into them.

Step 8: Crimp the strands to your clasp and cover with crimp covers if desired.

You can also add chain or cord to each side of the beaded center instead of strung beads. Try different sizes and shapes of ring or donut beads for extra fun!
